"Time Is Ticking" as written by Gloria M. Estefan, Emilio Jr. Estefan and Pharrell L. Williams....
Memories, a summer breeze
I'm on the bus almost getting home
Out on the street, Miami heat
I miss the smell of my Dad's cologne
And it seems to me like a melody
My favorite song on the radio
When you know turn it back before it goes

My front door, the corner store
Climbin' the tree in my old backyard
My mother's smile from ear to ear
When I got all A's on my report card
I can see them all when I close my eyes
It doesn't seem that long ago
When you know, you turn it back before it goes

Time is tickin' away, yeah
But it was just yesterday, yeah
Though it'll never be gone, yeah
We gotta live for today

Ice Cream from the Dairy Queen
On the corner by the Orange Bowl
My Grandma's voice always tellin' me
I'd understand when I was old

You can make mistakes, it'll be OK
But when you learn it's a pot o'gold
When you know
To turn it back before it goes

(Time is tickin' away)
Time is tickin' away
(But it was just yesterday)
It was just yesterday (Yeah)
(Though it'll never be gone)
Never be gone, never, never be gone (Yeah)
(We gotta live for today)
Got to live for today

Everything you live and you do
Becomes a part of you, so
You'll get back what you spread around

Everything you think and you say
Is gonna show up some way
So why not always take the higher ground

(Time is tickin' away)
El tiempo pasa y no vuelve jamás
Solo lo bueno quiero recordar
(But it was just yesterday, yeah)
Solo este día es el hay que vivir
Hacia adelante yo voy a seguir)
(Though it will never be gone)
Solo te enseña la vida es verdad
Ya lo que buscas lo vas a encontrar)
(We've got to live for today)
Hay que vivir para hoy

(Time is tickin' away)
El tiempo pasa
(But it was just yesterday)
Y no vuelve jamás
(Though it will never be gone)
Solo lo bueno, solo lo bueno quiero recordar
(We've got to live for today)
Hay que vivir para hoy

Time is tickin' away
Y no vuelve jamás
It was just yesterday
